Protector Blueprint Project
July 2, 2003 - I've had a couple questions come up about the Starcrafts Protector model, so for the record:
MAR 17, 2002 - I've put up the Web viewable version (DWF) of the prints. See the main blueprint page (Click the back above) for details on downloading a viewer.

- PROTECTOR CAD PRINTS NOW
DEC 30, 2001 - It's been slow going, but we're very close to completing the CAD prints... Just a couple minor details! This has been a "as time permits" project, so I expect that, with a little luck, within the next couple months It'll finally be done!
AUG 26, 2001 - Check out the sneak preview of the new cad prints!
Alan and I are still working out the details so It's still a work in progress... I'm optimistic that, time and schedules permitting, we'll be releasing the finished prints sometime within the next several months.
JULY 11, 2001 - For those of you that have been waiting for the Protector CAD's to be finished, there's good news! over the last several weeks Alan Sinclair has picked work on the Protector prints and has created some fantastic CAD blueprints! It's still a bit of a work in progress, but they're coming along quickly so stay tuned!
JULY 4, 2001 - Minor update... Check out the pic of the shuttle bay in the "current issues" section below.
JUNE 3, 2001 - The blueprint project is going on summer hiatus... time permitting I'll do some work on the prints, but for the most part I be off doing summer things :) The Protector CAD's are on hold till September.
APR 1, 2001 - I'll be putting the finishing touches on the CAD overhead view and may be posting the first set of rough views in the next couple weeks.
-ALL POSTED TARGET DATES CANCELED
FEB 18, 2001 - I've been working on the Protector CAD prints and they're coming along slowly. At this point the CAD prints are extended versions of the current graphic prints with some added details that were vague or missing from the prop version. the CAD version is basically traced from the prop prints so there are no huge new revelations in these. I've decided that when I've finished these current CAD versions, I'll be closing the active portion of the Protector blueprint project. I'll do update as new reference material becomes available. The only additional Protector related prints I may do sometime in the future will be deck plans (Possibly late 2001 or Early 2002)
JAN 21, 2001 - Because of time & energy constraints work is progressing slowly. I hope to have the first CAD sets finished possibly by the end of April. I'll be posting previews as available.
DEC 15, 2000 - I've updated the blueprint views to those taken from actual prop blueprints. With the exception of the front view (which needs work) these prints are as accurate as we're going to get short of getting a set of prints for the shooting miniature. These will be the last updates to the graphic version of the protector prints I'll be doing. All future Protector prints will be done using CAD software.
OCT 28, 2000 - I've just received several new references! the big news it that we now have a overhead and top view from prop blueprints! The top view is almost as good as current side view... the front view is from a prop t-shirt... so it'll take a bit of work to pull a good scan.
OCT 15, 2000 - I'm going to be working on set of Protector Prints using a CAD program, changing/correcting the graphic version is a pain! Given the time required, and the general crappy health I've been in lately, It'll be December - January before the first set is up. I'll also be starting in a set of internal deck plans as soon as the first set of outside views are completed.
SEP 2, 2000 - I haven't had a chance to do much with the Protector prints in August... Hopefully I'll have the time, energy and inspiration to do more on them in September... It should be noted that I'm reaching the limit of what I can do with the material available.
JULY 27, 2000 - I've Added 18 New reference photo's (Page 2) taken from one of the Protector Shooting models! I've finally been able to have the pic's be rather large... which should be a nice change of pace:) The pics where scanned at 300 dpi from 6" x 4" photo prints and If anyone has the need for a larger versions just let me know. I'll be working on adding details to the blueprint over the next couple weeks
JUNE 18, 2000 - Work has slowed down a bit over the last month... I've updated the forward view (which is the front view I used in the screen saver) More first hand references are on the way so with any luck in a couple weeks I'll be adding a lot more details.
MAY 13, 2000 - The overhead view has had a major reworking based on the side view and a fair scan of a overhead prop blueprint I found. The new top view is much more accurate (overall I was very close) and I was able to get about 70% - 80% of the details from electronic tracings. The forward pods needs work and bridge and dorsal detail need to be refined. More on the way :)
